What does Flirtationship mean?

A ‘Flirtationship’ is when two friends are always flirting with each other

A flirtationship typically describes a friendship soaked in heavy flirting. It could be two people who are genuinely interested in each other or it could just be two individuals who naturally flirt a lot. Regardless, their endless flirting often tends to irk those around them.

There can be various reasons why people in a flirtationship don’t transform their relationship into a full-fledged romance. For instance, one of them could already be committed to someone else. So, even though they might want to, they can’t turn their flirtationship into a romantic relationship.

Another situation could be that one person in the flirtationship recently ended a relationship with their previous partner. They may not be ready to jump into another relationship so soon, even if they are attracted to their flirtationship buddy.
